Tyrolean Traverse and Zip-line

Tyrolean Traverse and Zip-lineA Tyrolean traverse or zip-line is suitable for groups of all abilities and ages and gives an exhilarating yet extremely safe experience.  We can either set this up as a line spanning a deep quarry or river that requires a hand over hand technique (Tyrolean traverse) to move across whilst safely secured to the line with a harness and sling set up, or we can create a descending line (Zip-line) that lets gravity do the moving while you sit in your harness and hold on.  When not on the line we are all close by giving a very social and fun activity for groups.  Thorough briefs and demonstrations will be given buy our qualified instructors who will be at hand to help out and watch over all aspects of the activity and guide everyone individually through the techniques required for a smooth traverse or ‘zip’ down the line.

We offer this activity as either a full day option, a half day option, or as part of one of our Multi Activity Day options, it works particularly well when combined with an Abseiling session to create a multi challenge activity.

We generally run our group activities in the Lake District, a brilliant venue for all outdoor activities.  We can easily offer the service elsewhere though and are able to travel to you.  We are very flexible and mobile with this service and can advise on the best place to run a residential programme from and choose the best venues for your selected activities.

Please Contact Us to discuss the various options available, we will then put together a quote for you depending on your specific requirements and numbers.

 

Mark Rock Climbing Course

‘Having spend three days in the mountains with Paddy I’ve got to say he’s the best guide I’ve ever worked with. Everything was pitched perfectly for my individual level - the choice of climbs, the balance between learning and mileage on the crag, all suited my level of experience. In three days I went from never having climbed trad to leading VD, seconding HVS+ and ticking off a classic mountain route, all thanks to Paddy’s professionalism and enthusiasm. Can’t wait to get out there again!’
